surprise!

I love surprises–at the holidays or otherwise. I got this disc by accident, in a CD box that was supposed to contain keyboard music of J.S. Bach. As it turns out, this disc was a better deal. Alberto Lizzio and the London Festival Orchestra are not known quantities to me. No matter: the performances are spot-on and the recorded sound is extremely good. For me, the offered price of a penny plus postage would be a deciding factor. What is the point of my comparing these performances to those of Rostropovich, Ormandy, Dorati, Fistoulari, etc., etc.? None, really. All I can tell you is that, when you listen to these guys, you will not miss the others. The Swan Lake excerpts are very fine, while the Nutcracker pieces are altogether exceptional. My advice: at a five- or even a ten-spot plus postage, it will not get better than this.
